An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Bridget Fahy, and she was recommended to me by David T. Miller.
These paintings are abstract seascapes.
“Combinations of surface marks with the experimentation and creation of new textures and the constant play between elements of colour, line, shape and form have become distinctive characteristics of my work. The surfaces of my paintings are reworked and scraped back, marks are buried and rediscovered. A gradual process of layering and accrual is applied, always allowing the traces of the paintings construction to be revealed.” BF
